StartUp Sabarkantha is a platform for Innovators, Entrepreneurs, Incubators, Venture Funds, Government agencies and all Impactpreneurs to come together and explore opportunities for Innovation and Impact.
The Startup Ecosystem in Gujarat is concentrated in hotspots like Ahmedabad, Gandhinagar and Surat. There are start-ups in every nook and corner of Gujarat. Most of them are not connected to the ecosystem.
StartUP Sabarkantha is intended to showcase innovation and entrepreneurship opportunities and solutions for the Bottom of the Pyramid (BoP) and for rural areas. The platform aims to connect entrepreneurs from such areas to innovation ecosystem of Gujarat. The process will be facilitated and supported by Government agencies.
The StartUp Policy of Gujarat unveiled recently aims to support innovation and increase entrepreneurship quotient of the youth of Gujarat. India is poised to become the youngest country in 2020 with a median age of 29 years accounting for 28% of Workforce.
This initiative is led by Sabarkantha District Panchayat, Himatnagar.
